on romney's speech, releasing a new ad, reminding voters of the republican candidate's gaffe-plagued foreign trip over the summer. romney, obama aides say, is no ronald reagan, more like chevy chase. combatting that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's

they believe romney has been kind of soft in telling us where he's going to go on foreign policy in his speech today as well as on domestic policy, how would he reduce that deficit. so they still think they've got openings here, wolf. and they do. anything can happen. overnight's a lifetime in politics, particularly when it comes to a close presidential race like this. >> and all those folks thought that president obama had it wrapped up a few days ago, not yet. gloria, stand by. mitt romney was clearly hammering away at the president's foreign policy before a military audience today and sketched out a stronger, bolder response by a romney administration. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta has more on that. >> reporter: wolf, after millions of americans watched mitt romney go toe to toe with president obama at their first debate, the gop nominee now wants voters to see him as commander in chief. he's done just that in a series of foreign policy speeches, including one here at the virginia military institute where he kudz the president of allowing the middle east to drift closer

of the first time they heard romney talk at any length. his convention speech wasn't that well viewed. they didn't watch the republican primary debate. he is introducing himself to enormous number of people, enormous number of it will deciders. undecided and swingable independents. if he comes out presidential and goes on the offense with obama there is potential for a lot of upside for him. >> bret: we all have pollitis watching polls. but there is a new one today. the "wall street journal"/nbc poll puts the race at 4% for president obama. vi% for governor romney. if you look at the real clear politics average of polls, this is roughly about that from september 25 to octobe october 2. if you go to the "wall street journal" poll about the economy, approval, how is president obama doing handling the economy? vi% approve. 51% disapprove. brit, while right track/wrong track is narrowing there is still real negative numbers in the polls for president obama. >> well, for romney to have a chance, there better be. because that is the issue that is central. he had been gaining ground on the i

charged speech in virginia is distraction and accusing allies of romney of spreading the tape to the media. the romney come pain denies having -- campaign denies having any part in it. it surfaced last night on daily and thin ran on "hannity." the speech was open to the press in hampton university in june of 2007. we covered that speech on "special report" with brit hume. ran a sound bite from senator obama on his concern about the federal response to hurricane katrina. other media outlets covered it as well. but what was not covered then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now

will see him repeat that mistake. lou: the romney campaign says they will not bring up the 2007 speech want you think of their choice? >> it is interesting. the two different arguments obama uses we cannot be divisive to make an incendiary comments. but to look at the mainstream media types that say we were there and it makes you wonder about their judgment how did they cover it but not cover some much rhetoric? that is a harsh criticism to make for our like to think if i cover the speech at that time that would not only be in my story but it is significant to say that. >> you question the news judgment i question the ideological judgment. it is lacking and we will go things that happened in the speech but the one element we will discuss tonight as if list send to candidate obama not even two weeks since he voted in the united states senate against the waiver of the act for new orleans i doubt we'll ever see such a clear case of such cynical opportunism by any candidate certainly not from any officeholder. thank you. we'll have more on the debate coming up. >> whereas obama's cabinet been h

romney is planning a new speech. the following two presidential debates will include that. megyn: meantime president barack obama is in henderson, nevada. some say the city of henderson is a microcosm of the economy we have seen over the past few years. yet the latest polls show the race in nevada is neck and neck and that is causing -- ed henry live in vegas. hey, ed. >> the president -- they are calling it debate camp in henderson. 20 miles from where i am right now it's an opulent resort known as lake las vegas that is symbol i of the boom and bust. that whole lake las vegas resort where the president is doing his debate prep. it's modeled after an italian village. it went bankrupt the last few years. it's now sort of coming back and the president is hoping that is a microcosm that he's pushing this recovery along slowly, not just mere in nevada but all along the country. it's interesting to hear john roberts about chris christie raising expectations for mitt romney. the president at a rally in vegas last night tried to do just the opposite and lower expectations. >> i know fo

is the right place to do it. after the paul ryan speech, you have the obama campaign referring to the lies in paul ryan's speech and that's echoed by president obama's allies in the media. when you don't have the romney campaign's response robustly. for example, president obama has been running ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of a assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. also puts harvey rosen, you can also generate enough growth to avoid a middle class tax increase. there are a loft credible folks saying something else. it's a fact he's going to raise middle class tax. >> the obama campaign, david plouffe is a chris christie of the campaign saying their campaign is built on a tripod of lies and the president has said sometimes they just make things up. >> last i checked, isn't this called politics? you have lying all the time in politics. it is our responsibility to call folks out on it. on my tv 1 show, i have a

. romney, i was in new york last week, and he performed beautifully. unfortunately, nobody really showed up to cover it. he did two speeches, one at the clinton global initiative and one at that education forum. he was amazing. i was like where was that guy during the whole campaign? >> gretchen: interesting. >> if that's the romney that shows up, romney is going to smoke obama. if that's the romney. >> reagan did it just right. >> exactly. >> if romney does that, if he can capture a bit of that reaganesque quality, then you're going to see those polls turn around very quickly. >> bill, i was going to compliment you and you didn't let me. the reason o'reilley is popular is not because you're not tough. you are tough. but you also bring the facts in and you bring in analysis to the people that they can say, gosh. even if i don't agree with him, i respect his point of view. that's what romney needs to do. >> brian: you always end on a positive note. please say something nice to laura. >> we love laura. are you kidding me is it i have to say, we have some of the best debates in television. not

, the conventions, those moments when the candidates get up and give their big speech to the country tend to be the period when the polls kind of start to get locked in which isn't a good sign for mitt romney at the moment. there can be exceptions, but since is the media narrative profession tends to overplay electoral significance, and my judgment, the value of the sort of policy explanations we get most of the time as well. >> fair and balanced is kind of a tricky question. we have run a couple things that i have edited about essentially the flood coverage of romney in particular, and there's a lot you can beat up on romney. he has not legitimately i think. he has as was talked about even by the standards of a modern politician a startling lack of specificity in his policy agenda , and he's basically unapologetic about it, and i did -- i would love to see the press beat up on him every day for that. at the same time, they're has been i think a character a logical mauney sends someone who isn't particularly sympathetic to mitt romney's agenda is that the coverage has been informed by the
